Cineraria Hybrids (Cineraria Cruentus Amigo Strain) - This hardy annual can be started from Cineraria seeds, and your garden will thank you! Cineraria Cruentus plants are one of the most beautiful, low-growing flowers that you can grow from flower seeds! These compact, mounding plants are great for containers, pathway edges or even as ground cover plants. Cineraria blooms in shades of blue, red and pink, and they are perfect for cool season color! Commonly the plants are called Florist's Cineraria, and there are a couple of synonymous botanical names: Senecio Cruentus and Pericallis cruenta.
Cineraria seeds require light for germination, so do not cover the flower seeds. Plant in a container or tray containing a seed starting mix and lightly press flower seeds into soil. Keep the flower seeds moist and germination should occur in 14 - 21 days. Blooms will appear in 16 - 18 weeks. Cineraria plants are liberal self-sowers, dropping their own flower seeds. Deadhead the spent Cineraria flowers if self-sowing is not desired.
